has been eschewed by the united states because washington feels there are too many voices talking. you don't know who is really talking when that happens. there should be no confusion about the solutions presented. i think we are missing a huge chance to explore with ambassadors to really know the issue and can hold very off the record discussions to explore what we can do. i think that has not been done enough. track 2 has gone nowhere and track one has gone nowhere. i would like to see that happen. perhaps we can try to show the iranians with the end game is. if mitt romney is elected, that might set us back quite a bit. >> it is difficult to negotiate with one of the oldest civilizations. you can appreciate how difficult it is to keep iran on board. sanctions don't work. iran may be put under tougher sanctions but think of the pakistani situation. i don't think iran is committed to get the bomb but that was the case, [inaudible] united states may or may not want turkey to get involved. it is not the only arbiter in the world. you mentioned four reasons why the talks were doomed

toward a weapon. up until october, 2003, the united states was pushing very hard to get iran referred to the u.s. security council for not being forthcoming. remember that there was the war in iraq. there was a strong push on the part of the europeans, especially britain, germany, and france not to go to the security council because they saw iran going the way of iraq. going to the security council would be a mandate for war. countries like france had been at odds with the united states over iraq and did not want to be at odds with the u.s. over iran, but wanted to stop the united states from doing what it did to iraq. we had a dramatic event where the foreign ministers of germany, in october, 2003, struck an agreement where iran would embark on uranium enrichment. it is the ultimate in dual use technology. it had the united states stepping back and britain, germany, and france became known as the eu3. in november of 2004, iran went along with this saying they would also be a part of uranium enrichment. but he doesn't buy, eu3 was submitting a proposal to iran promising help for its prog
